CAST's Annual Report--Contributing to a Sustainable Future

Each year, CAST strives to strengthen its mission--to assemble, interpret, and communicate credible, balanced, science-based information to policymakers, the media, the private sector, and the public. Because of membership support and the support of our extended community, we are able to make that happen.  

Last year, individual members showed that they believe credible science is more important than ever by contributing 85% more donations than in 2017. CAST delivered by rolling out six publications--two times more publications than previous years. 

The organization also continued to communicate ag/science information through its website, videos, social media, and weekly newsletter. CAST has become increasingly active due to successful social media platforms and an increase in its education program membership.

As CAST moves forward in 2019, we will ensure our reports--produced by the collaboration of scientists and experts--communicate credible, balanced, and accurate information to our stakeholders and the public.

CAST wants to thank you, our members, for your support. You are not only contributing to a sustainable future for CAST but also sustaining the integrity of credible science.

  • Letters from the CAST president and executive vice president
  • Lists of our board members, individual members, and society members
